​Vitamin E Suppositories as a treatment

Vitamin E Suppositories are often recommended as a natural (and internal) option to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with the dryness that occurs from vaginal atrophy. Whilst vitamin E is a known moisturizer, what does the science actually say about this remedy? We did some digging to find out!

This study compared vitamin E with conjugated estrogens in terms of how they treated the symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy. The results were fairly straightforward; the estrogen group had more recovery than the vitamin E group BUT, the vitamin E group did see relief - albeit less. However, they can be used together, and vitamin E suppositories provide a great option for women who cannot take hormones, or women who want some added internal relief.
